Getting around

We are in the "middle of nowhere" yet in the middle of everything. The Loire is just one hour to the north giving access to all those lovely Chateaux, and there are plenty of small, historic towns within easy reach 20-30 mins. Locally, there is a market almost every day and many attractions for families and individuals. The roads are quiet, so driving, cycling or walking are all a great pleasure. There is a Bus service which runs from Grand Pressigny to Tours.

Very Good

“Simply Awesome!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2015

We had a wonderful two week family holiday. Dave and Patience were outstanding hosts providing helpful first hand information on the local area. The area was wonderfully quiet, just what we all wanted, but there was plenty to do from cycling to badminton to visiting local restaurants for gorgeous food and live music. The gite was perfect; spacious, clean and well equipped. For a family who don't visit the same place twice, on the drive home we were all agreed that we are in a real dilemma about where we should go next, it was that good! Thank you Dave and Patience for a great holiday; we'll be's just a matter of when!

Owner's reply: As a family who don't go anywhere twice we'd be delighted to see you again and help you change your mind about second visits. Peace and tranquility; gardens and swimming pool; comfortable gite and good restaurants. What more could you want?

“Truly idyllic.”

My family and I enjoyed a truly wonderful 10 day break at La Richardière. The area is beautiful and peaceful with tranquil countryside all around and pretty local villages. The locals were very welcoming and included our children in the Easter egg hunt, there seems to be a lot of local fun to take part in. We had fantastic day trips to Loches for the Pirate weekend and the weekly market, I particularly enjoyed the acoustic a Capella singing in the old church at the top of the hill in the medieval town area in Loches. The zoo parc Beauval was a delight, especially the pandas! The children particularly enjoyed that trip. The gite itself was attractively and sympathically renovated, the interior was cool and comfortable in the unexpected April heat, a wood burning stove was a lovely addition. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. We had everything we needed for an extremely relaxing, happy holiday! The children loved having bikes to use and vast open spaces to play in. Finally, a word has to be said about the hosts, although new to La Richardière, The Brown family were extreemly welcoming and attentive and very knowledgeable about the local area, where to go, what to do, what was on. I really wanted to stay for the moules and frite evening at the restaurant in Grand Pressigny and the Irish bands with fish and chips in July sounds like a great night out! This is one of the best holidays we have had, we can't wait to visit again!

Owner's reply: Thank you for adding to the atmosphere here at La Richardiere. It was a pleasure to provide accommodation for your family.
